publication-name The name of the publication to which the user is being subscribed. This may include the owner of the publication.

remote-user The user ID of the subscriber to the publication. This user must have a subscription to the publication.
A SQL Remote subscription is said to be synchronized when the data in the remote database is consistent with that in the consolidated database, so that publication updates sent from the consolidated database to the remote database will not result in conflicts and errors.
To synchronize a subscription, a copy of the data in the publication at the consolidated database is sent to the remote database. The SYNCHRONIZE SUBSCRIPTION statement does this through the message system. It is recommended that where possible you use the database extraction utility (dbxtract) instead to synchronize subscriptions without using a message system.
Must have DBA authority.
